More ladies with snazzy hats and tres cool matching outfits.  Another pair of sisters?  Early lady live-bird/trap shooters?

I think the seated babe is holding some type of tip-up type rifle. Whatever the standing babe has, she appears to be in the process of loading it. Perhaps she doesn't like her photo being taken.

Shotguns. Or shotgun and second barrel.
  

If a waffle falls over on a breakfast table and no one is there to hear it, did the waffle make a sound?

This repaired and altered Sharps Model 1874 rifle was invoiced in June 1874 to gun dealer F.C. Zimmerman at Dodge City, Kansas. Bought by professional buffalo hunter and later-famed peace officer William “Bill” Tilghman, the weapon killed several thousand buffalo between 1874 and 1878. Broken in a horse-fall out on the range, the buttstock was repaired by Tilghman using a strip of raw buffalo hide. Sometime after leaving the range, Tilghman had the octagonal barrel cut down from 32 inches to 24 inches to serve as a convenient saddle gun.

That guy and his rifle look as though they lived the real life. His boots are not fancy and look well worn.  His hands look very grizzled, possibly his right hand was badly burned. I'd say he went there,did that and got the T-shirt. Neat pic.

Looks to be some sort of single shot. I'll leave the ID to the experts.

That's a Whitney Phoenix, I believe; not the most commonly photographed single shot, to be sure.  His brace of pistols is more interesting, however.  Floberts?
